January 1, 2018 starts of a new year and new journeys.
September updated washrooms new higher toilets with safety rails, new sink, soap dispenser and fresh coat of paint. A new projection system for the sanctuary used in operation with Sunday service.
2019   New tables in Friendship Hall.
2020   The session on Feb 10, 2020 closed Seagrave Church due to covid-19 virus.
Minister Stephanie started doing Services by Youtube videos. Many members of Greenbank and Seagrave church worked to make this possible, reading from the bible, sings, story's all from  home recording everything and Miss E. Hooker would put all the videos together into one service. The children of both church also read the readings and sang, the church community was every active, even if we could not meet in person. Pictures where sent in of what we are doing and shared at end of video as a coffee time, muchly enjoyed. 
Stephanie and Bill would drive around stopped at the driveway of church members talking for a distance. Visiting our members in retirement homes at a distance or by phone.
Seagrave session set up a weekly call list to see if anyone need help and just a friendly chat.
A food bank was setup to help all people in need as most companies closed down making it hard for people to make ends meet. The food bank had book, game, puzzles and other activities for all ages. When children where going back to school in middle of Sept. masks where add to the food bank table. Companies and restaurants slowly opened up, as government keeping check on virus numbers, but they went up. So in some areas, some place where closed down again and schools too.
On September 19th, 2020 (government would let 10 people meet inside at a distance) at this time Minister Stephanie was ordained as Reverend Stephanie and the service was broadcasted over Youtube for the friends, family and church members to watch.
The church is staying closed for now Sisson and the reopening committees feel for the safety of our members.
